Clarence Blake Friesen (1918-2012)
A sad marker in the history of the Mennonite Historical Society of Saskatchewan occurred on Monday 9 January 2012 with the death Clarence Blake Friesen. Blake, as he was known to everyone, was our second president serving enthusiastically from 1976 when he took over from Ted Regehr to 1980 when the Dick Epp era began.
Blake Friesen, aged 93 years, 7 months and 13 days, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at the Newport Harbour Care Centre in Calgary, Alberta. On Tuesday 17 January a service of thanksgiving for Blake will take place at Trinity Mennonite Church, DeWinton, Alberta at 10:00 a.m. with interment at Eden Brook Memorial Gardens.
Blake was a dedicated, inspirational leader and energetic in many aspects of the Mennonite Church life and activities and will be both sorely missed and remembered with great admiration. Good bye Blake and God Bless!
